One of the most promising error correcting schemes is the family of Spatially-Coupled (SC) LDPC codes. SC-LDPC codes achieve capacity universally on memoryless binary symmetric channels, and their special structure can be exploited to implement low-latency high-throughput decoders. In this talk, a new type of SC-DPC codes motivated by practical storage applications is presented. These new codes can be decoded locally at the level of sub-blocks that are much smaller than the full code block, thus providing random access to the coded information.
